      Hello Everyone,
      I am going to start filming a music video for a London rock band on March. However, my lack of concrete experience oblige me to ask for a few tips and advices from you.

      My lighting skills is kind of my achille's heels, in the sense that I am well aware of the three point lighting technique, but I don't know if I should apply this same system over a band.
      My plan is to get them to stand in a standard band position, similar to this one. It shall alternates between wide shot and close up of the different band members.

      Now, here is the lighting kit I can use
      Kinoflo Celeb Light
      Dedo Lighting Kit
      Led Lighting Kit

      The Location might be a rehearsal room, a studio or something else, defintely Indoors. Has anybody any suggestion on which kit and where should I place the light to have a cheerful, dynamic short music video?
      Should I change my lighting setup when focusing on a singular band member?

      Thanks for solving my doubts!

      This has been asked before on here:


      There are so many possibilities I'd suggest spending some time viewing videos on Youtube to get a sense of what others have done. You could flood the area with light or use directional spots on each performer. Lighting helps set the mood and tone of a music video, and that has to be figured out first. Then develop a lighting plan.
